In the last 3 years of coaching Entrepreneurs in the Philippines, di ko na mabilang ang mga OFWs na sumulat sa akin.
There are times na pagka-haba haba ng sulat. Meron naman simpleng thank you message lang.
But all their emails are saying the same thing…“Jon, gusto ko ng umuwi at makasama ang pamilya ko.”
I personally met many OFWs in my lifetime.
Marami sa kanila, nasira ang pamilya. Nagloko ang mister. Nag sakabilang-bahay si misis.
Naparawira ang teen-ager na anak. Nalulong sa drugs. Nag asawa ng maaga.
Sometimes, I feel like I’m Joe De Mango giving relationship advice.
All of them, they simply want to have a comfortable life with their family. But because there are not enough job opportunities in the Philippines lalo kung may edad ka na, they are forced to go work abroad.
I salute these people. I have so much respect to them. My dad was an OFW too for 10 years.
That’s why I can’t help but to reach out to more Filipinos and teach them how to start and run a profitable business.
Truth is, running a business isn’t easy.
But at least, people have options rather than being away from the families. At least they have a fighting chance to make more money than begging their boss for a salary increase. At least they more control of their lives than a BIG corporation dictating how much they should make each payday.
Hindi lahat pwedeng negosyante pero hindi din lahat ay tamang maging empleyado lang.
Unfortunately, our culture breeds “employee.” Traditional schools are like a huge manufacturing company. Each year they produces “employee.”
On the other hand, “negoyantes” were produced by real world experience and training or what I call “The School of Life.”
Pag nadapa, tatayo ulit at lalaban. Pag nadapa ulit, bangon na naman at itutuloy ang nasimulan.
Whether you’re aspiring negosyante or already running a business, join me in the new revolution of EntrePinoys.
